2014 Richmond: Ty Dillon NASCAR Nationwide Race Preview

This Week's WESCO Chevrolet at Richmond International Raceway ... Dillon will race chassis No. 125 in this weekend's NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Richmond International Raceway. This Richard Childress Racing-prepared chassis was raced earlier this season at Phoenix International Raceway and collected a 10th-place finish. Last season, it was ran in both Nationwide Series events at Richmond International Raceway.

Dillon in the Nationwide Series at Richmond International Raceway ... Dillon is making his third-career start at RIR, having raced in a Nationwide Series event the past two seasons at the 0.75-mile track. In 2012, Dillon drove the No. 51 Chevrolet Camaro to a seventh-place finish and in 2013 he drove the No. 33 WESCO Chevrolet Camaro to a 16th-place finish.

Going 'Green' on RCR's campus ... WESCO International, Inc. and Legrand, a leading provider of electrical supply, have provided RCR with two environmentally friendly Electrical Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations, Level 2, 30A EV Charging Stations for its Welcome, N.C. campus. The charging stations power electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles of RCR's employees and guests. The stations are located in front of the RCR Museum and Sprint Cup shop/corporate offices.

Did you know? ... WESCO supplies more than 215,000 products and is recognized as one of the largest electrical distributors in the country. Based in Pittsburgh, Pa., WESCO supplies items ranging from light fixtures to safety equipment.

Last time out at Darlington Raceway ... Dillon started fifth in the Sport Clips 200 and hovered around the top-10 for most of the evening, eventually finishing 10th,recording his sixth top-10 in seven races.

Points update ... After his fourth consecutive top-10 finish two weeks ago in Darlington, Dillon currently sits fourth in the driver point standings seven races into the 2014 season. The top five drivers in the standings are separated by only 30 points, with the No. 3 team trailing the leader by 23 markers. Dillon is currently second in the Sunoco Rookie of the Year championship competition.

"I'm still a little new to Richmond, but fortunately I've had a couple of opportunities to race there the past few years. It's a similar track to Iowa Speedway and short-track racing under the lights will definitely make for a good race. Danny (Stockman, crew chief), the guys, and I worked hard on our off-week and we are focused on improving and getting this No. 3 WESCO Chevrolet back in victory lane."

On RCR's 1000th start in the Nationwide Series:
"It's awesome to see how far RCR's Nationwide Series program has come because it's something we've heavily invested in the past several years and I think it has paid off. To think that RCR has made 1000 starts in this series, starting with my dad back in the 90's, is awesome. I hope we can continue this program for many more years."
